The title of Chuuwee‘s latest single may be Japanese for “suicide attack,” but don’t worry; self-destruction isn’t on the Booth fave’s agenda. On the contrary, the Sacramento representative intends to stay elevated for the foreseeable future. An ode to his recent global global travels, Kamikaze finds the emcee getting high on a potent cocktail of narcotics as he cruises toward his next destination (which, judging by the free-associative hook, is the Land of the Rising Sun). Producer Ron Shaw backs Chuuwee’s blunted, yet ambitious bars with an airy string/brass sample and sizzling trap hi-hats. Does this jet-setting banger have you on cloud nine? Then don’t miss the rest of the fresh material slated for inclusion on DJBooth-hosted street album Thrill, set to drop next Tuesday (7/30) in both free and premium versions.
